1 out of 5 eggs1310nm laser

Pros: Small size. Solid metal construction. No frills or switches to mess with.

Cons: 1310nm laser. This is a 1000Base-LH wavelength laser on multimode fiber. Nothing about this is standard. There is no such thing as 1000Base-FX either. I guess that should have been a clue.
DO NOT bother attempting to use with standard 1000Base-SX equipment due to the 1310nm laser. I suspect these units only work back-to-back cause they certainly don't work with anything else. And if they are getting "2km" over multimode, an extremely dubious claim, more power to them.

Other Thoughts: Look elsewhere at something standards-based.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry you experienced a problem with your Tripp Lite Media Converter. A few things to keep in mind when using this product are: when you connect a Media Converter to a network transceiver, the wavelengths have to match. If you are plugging the unit into a Fiber Transceiver, which is 850nm to our 1310nm this could also cause a problem. However, without knowing the full scope of your installation it is difficult to determine a solution to the problems you experienced. Our Chicago based Technical support team is available to troubleshoot and to work on finding a solution to the problems you experienced. They can be reached at 773-869-1234.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Works as expected. Haven't been able to test under heavy load but handles a long multimode fiber run.

Cons: No rack mount kit comes with it.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product if you don't want to spend money on vendor-specific SFP switch modules and don't mind setting this on a shelf or retro-fitting rack-mount brackets.
